Mortis-ing the Crown Wheel

image

We drilled 1” round or cylinder shaped holes (see the holes on the right) then we chiseled them out to about 1” cubes (see the holes on the left). We did our best to taper the mortis so that the tanens (roof poles) which have corresponding tapered rectangular ends will fit snugly together. Since each tanen and mortis were hand shaped some adjustments will likely happen at yurt erection time.
